In Rubens’ footsteps

A newly-developed walk will take you on a tour of Antwerp’s monumental churches, which are all inextricably linked with the painter Peter Paul Rubens. Explore a selection of three churches, under the expert supervision of a guide, to discover traces of Rubens’s life in the city.

A biographical exploration of Antwerp's monumental churches
